Protected and conserved area(s) concerned

Three Bays Protected Area

The BIOPAMA AC Objectives addressed

  • Support local community initiatives aimed at strengthening the livelihoods of local populations, while contributing effectively to the management of protected areas.

Priority need addressed

Reforestation of 100 hectares of the Three Bays Protected Area and promotion of integrated soil conservation agricultural practices with 150 smallholders to improve the livelihoods and resilience of local communities in the face of major shocks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, while contributing effectively to the management of protected areas.

The fight against illegal deforestation to increase tree cover and food availability for the local community.

Project activities

The Soil Conservation and Reforestation project focuses on agroforestry practices to support the effective management and governance of the Three Bays Protected Area, through capacity building and participation of approximately 150 direct beneficiaries.  It will include the recruitment of 100 hectares of dereferences (GPS points) among the degraded areas of the interventions of small farmers and establish groupings for the 150 small neighbouring farmers to promote governance, democracy, self-management of certain activities of the SAFICSol-Reforestation project. 

The project will prepare, procure and plant 50,000 fruit and forest trees on the 100 hectares and supply short production cycle crops in association to improve food availability and resilience to post COVID-19 shocks.

The change the project implementation will bring for the protected area(s)

The project implementation will result in at least 15 new woodlots of reforestation on 100 hectares recruited, the improvement of social and economic relations between beneficiaries, the increased surveillance and good integration of the population in the fight against deforestation for reforestation or reforestation, protection of the biodiversity of the area of intervention and better ecosystem cohabitation between species and actors.

Additionally, the project will lead to the realization of meetings for discussions and decision-making as well as the organization of civil local governance of 150 direct beneficiaries.
